Want to know what the #1 goal of Lent is? Believe it or not, we don’t have to feel the joy of the season to reach it. Instead, we have to focus on living it!
Today, Fr. Mike challenges us to go beyond performing our works of penance for selfish reasons but instead to model our prayer, fasting. and almsgiving in a way that helps us become more like Jesus.
